Physical Education is “education through the physical”. It aims to develop students’ physical competence and knowledge of movement and safety, and their ability to use these to perform in a wide range of activities associated with the development of an active and healthy lifestyle. It also develops students’ confidence and generic skills, especially those of collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking and aesthetic appreciation. These, together with the nurturing of positive values and attitudes in Physical Education, provide a good foundation for students’ lifelong and life-wide learning.

Students can enjoy a game of carrom, engage in a battle of minds by playing chess or have fun sending ping-pong balls flying across the table tennis table. All in all, the indoor game center is the hang-out place where students get to take that much needed break from academic pursuits. After all, all work and no play makes students dull boys and girls.
